Passengers Say The Stupidist Things

Last night while getting settled in to my seat to travel back to SEA for a short weekends rest there was a Dad and Daughter boarding. As they passed through the FC I heard the little girl say "Dad these seats are huge" the dad replied "yes they are and these people up here will get a big meal and better drinks too but we are sitting in the CHEPO SECTION and will have to buy extras if we want them" .

Question.....Do you think the Dad knows the price at which those CHEPO seats have came at???...Do you think he thought for one second that the person who made his reservation....issued him his boarding card.....checked him into the flight at the gate....will serve him the drinks and sell him those snacks and welcome him aboard...the person who is putting his bag into the cargo hold,,,,,,,the person who has carefully planned his route of flight and fuel load and lets not forget the Flight crew up front who have years of costly training that will make sure that they reach there destination safely and yes the MX people who make sure the AC is in proper working order. But lets not forget some of the above has been OUTSOURCED.

Do you think that Dad thought for one second that each of those people have taken pay cuts or started working for less now than they did ten years ago.

If you have the same thought process as the Dad just think about if your employer asked you to give back some of your earnings to help the company and the paying public....then think about the CEO who hasn't gave back near as much in comparison. After all if some of these airlines had not received concessions they might not be here today thus higher prices....

End of what some will say..Another Rant.

We unfortunately live in a culture of entitlement and we don't always appreciate the sacrifices made. Last night, on AA from DTW to ORD, I was right in front in coach. The coach flight attendant - Paula - was stellar: friendly, helpful, kind. I know, normally that would be an oxymoron for AA, but despite a 90 min delay, Paula went out of her way to accommodate passengers.

On landing in ORD, the First class obviously disembarked first. There was a large, 300lb gentleman in the middle of first. He was short, probably 5'2", bald and looked kind of like a fat bullet. He stood in the middle of the aisle, slowly putting on his coat and then proceeded to repack his briefcase, while blocking the aisle. All of us in coach stood waiting for him.

Eventually, Paula kindly asked him "Sir, would you mind stepping out of the aisle so other passengers can pass? Due to the delay, many have very short connection times." He turned, said to her. "I had to wait for others so I can get my stuff. Now they can wait for me. I don't care if they miss there connections. Screw you!"

I guess money can get you out of first, but it cannot buy you humanity.

Randy, I agree with you--passengers shouldn't complain about the woes and inconveniences of sitting in the "cheapo" section because, ultimately, that's the only way the typical casual traveller will actually travel. You can't have cheap seats and five-star service because it's just not feasible. The average Joe doesn't care about the pilots making 40% less than they did ten years ago or their rampers that are subject to lousy work rules. All so many of them care about is getting to Disney World on that $100 fire-sale fare for a (exorbitantly overpriced) vacation. They just care that they're not getting their turkey sandwich and apple for free anymore because those stupid, late, oft-delayed airlines are just cutting back everywhere.

Unfortunately I doubt it will get better anytime soon. Unless there comes a major shift in consumer preferences (namely a willingness to pay more for upgraded service) or, say, a collapse of bargain-basement airlines like Skybus and an across-the-board fare increase (which would more likely curtail demand for leisure travel), I just don't see the current trend reversing.

And you're right. To those of us in aviation, it's sad.

The way I read it, the man wasn't complaining about sitting in the main cabin at all--it was his choice, and he was explaining what he bought to his daughter.

Yeah, I kind of read a little into what he was saying and took it as kind of a sarcastic complaint to his daughter, because of his reference to the seats up front being large and including full meals. Maybe Randy can shed a little light on the context for us.

Does "cheapo" mean something else in American English? The way I read it he wasn't saying anything out of place, just explaining that he paid less for his seat and got less. I'd have said something to the same effect. How is this stupid? I use the word cheapo all the time to mean something that was relatively cheap - as in inexpensive - compared with other products/services on the market.

This isn't so much of a rant but a huge misunderstanding of the use of the word "cheapo". The only thing that dad said that was wrong was that the folks in Fc would get a big meal! (well they might of depending on the length of flight and airline).

Bingo...we have a winner....

IMO the word CHEAPO is a negative term...I felt after rehashing the statement several times the father statement was met as a two fold statement...one that was without any educated thought with regards to the current environment when he said CHEAPO in front of me as well as two F/A's he might as well said "The fire department took their time putting out the fire in front of a fireman at there burned out house"...people still don't realize that air travel no matter what is still a great value when you consider just in the time savings alone....also he was setting up his daughter with "I haven't been able to get up here yet so you probably wont either in your life"....kinda a bad example to impart on the young ones....even if he had used the word CHEAP...it would not have been as bad......

BTW where was I sitting....in F/C part of my perks as an employee also I get FD privileges as well....because my parents never imposed boundary's on what I could achieve.

Isn't this what a market economy is all about? You pay for the service you want. If you don't expect to use all the extras included in First Class and don't want to pay for them, you buy a cheaper ticket and pay for the services you do use. The man with a daughter referred to in the thread starter knew what he was buying when he booked the flight. If he wanted the legroom or nice drinks of First included, he shouldn't have booked his flight in Coach.

So you were sitting in First for free, and making a judgment call on a paying passenger referring to himself as a cheapo.

I never said you didn't. I was merely commenting about from where you were seated while making a disparaging judgment call against a paying passenger, who, by the way, pays your salary.

Too bad the other pax didn't start pushing past him......If I had a TRULY tight connection, I'd probably have politely asked him to move. But that's me.

As to CHEAPO dad, why not simply tell her that yes, the seats are big, and the people sitting there worked hard to afford them. While perhaps not always the strictest of truth, it would make flying F as something SHE could get was a result of work -- thereby also showing work to be a good thing.

But to say "cheapo" seats is tacky.

The only sacrifice I saw being made was that the dad was too "cheapo" to pay for the upgrade. I don't see where the rant of the thread starter had anything to do with what the guy said to his daughter. What sacrifices were made by all involved that had any impact on whether he sat in FC or the last row, by the lavs? You want the bigger seat and free drinks, pay for it. Otherwise eat your trail mix and Coke in a plastic cup and keep quiet. FC is a service for those who wish to pay for it. It's not an entitlement. I loved it when passengers would get on dead last and demand I move luggage around for them to put thier lugguage above "their seat". They paid for passage to a location, not real estate. That's not THEIR seat. It's the airline's seat and he is being given the luxuryor privilige of using it... for a price of course. You want space above 'your seat'... maybe you shoulda left for the airport a few minutes earlier to get there in time not to be the last one onboard...

As an employee, I enjoyed the perk of being upgraded when I flew. But I kept my mouth shut and never discussed my business with anyone. If the crew didn't interact with me, no one would ever know I was crew flying upfront for free. It's called discretion and professionalism. I don't see where a crew member flying for free... period... forget that he was upgraded to FC anyways... has anything to say about any comments coming from anyone else on the subject. I'm sure there was someone who paid for their ticket, who could have been upgraded, but instead it was the employee. Sounds like it's the employee who is the ingrate, not the dad.

yep

I think gate agents and flight attendants say as many silly and inapropriate things as passengers anyway.

I once had a AA gate agent tell me my girlfreing really didnt have to go to the bathroom before waiting in line to board and he should have closed the door to the jetway but he was willing to let us "take advantage of him and the airline". (this was a connecting flight thru Dallas with each flight at opposite ends of the place, our plane was late and had to wait for a gate, and we had 10 minutes to get to the connection)

I flushed my FF card on that very flight along with any loyalty to AA I had left.

Do you think that Dad thought for one second that each of those people have taken pay cuts or started working for less now than they did ten years ago.

And this is the dad's fault - how????

People pay what the airlines charge. Even on Priceline people don't really name their own price.

As for your other comments, I've had occasion to think about those items. Usually because I've been met with rudeness, lack of professionalism, or some other attitude problem that makes the experience stick in my mind. The worst case was with Delta where some bitch (and she really, really was) twisted her face and said "If I weren't such a nice person, I'd charge you for those headphones." They were my own headphones I was using to listen to my own CD's. Scary. In my letter to Delta I mentioned "the only good thing you did was not crash the plane." I also lost my camera on that trip, on a Delta plane. I stepped off the aircraft and realized I didn't have it. I turned around to go back to the plane but was refused. I had to go to Delta customer service who then escorted me onto the aircraft. By that time, of course, the cleaning crew were on. The camera, and the last shots I had of my father alive, were gone. Delta customer service refunded my tickets plus some, at least.

And yet, when my father passed away a couple of months later, and I had to take a red-eye cross country, Delta walked on water - every Delta person I came in contact with walked on water. Every one of them. I will go out of my way to fly with Delta because of how I was treated on that occasion.

I'm usually very forgiving, realizing there are malcontents who always think someone owes them something, the ones who lash out and blame the customers for their misery. One always has to believe such people are a minority, that most of the people in an airline really aren't trying to ruin your day.
